3) Coming Back to the USA? All You Need is Your Face

3) Coming Back to the USA? All You Need is Your Face

The USA government is rolling out facial recognition as the *only* entry requirement for Global Entry members at a select group of airports. Once these started popping up, we did some research and found that the US Government had announced the measure with very little fanfare some time. ago. For example, see https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/national-media-release/global-entry-celebrates-10-years-expediting-international-travel . Of course, some risk-averse travelers will decry the abuse of privacy, but others will appreciate the increased speed and ease of travel through customs and immigration. Is this a sign of what’s to come? (Thanks for bubbling this up to us, Caleb!)

4) What Do We Know About Rooted?

We keep hearing more and more about Rooted. Can anyone tell us what makes it special? How would you compare/contrast it with disciple-making movement (DMM) training? At the end of the training, do participants typically want to multiply https://www.experiencerooted.com 

Looks like we might go ahead and stage the 10-week opener in conjunction with our regular Sunday early-evening three-thirds group. In ten weeks, we’ll know a lot more.
